After installing Ubuntu v. 18.04, I suppose that ghostscript does not work proper. It cannot convert eps-files to pdf. I suppose that the TeX-command epstopdf make use of it. Is that true? What alternative do I have?

I use Ubuntu 18.04 TeXmaker 5.0.2 Ghostscript 9.25

Here an error from the log-file: !Package pdftex.def Error: File `eps/OM27-eps-converted-to.pdf' not found: using draft setting.

Beside TeX there is no program at the moment at my computer for viewing EPS-files. Most of those programs make use of ghostscript.



I already found the solution: Indeed there were problems with ghostscript, especially /usr/share/ghostscript/9.25/iccprofiles was empty. Instead there was a map /usr/share/color/icc/ghostscript/. After copying the files to ghostscript, the problem was solved.


After an update ghostscript didn't work at all. Finally I had to remove the files placed in /usr/share/ghostscript/9.25/iccprofiles. After doing the installation of texlive and texlive-font-utils there appeared a link from /usr/share/ghostscript/9.25/iccprofiles to /usr/share/color/icc/ghostscript/.
